Obviously most on this forum would choose any Dead option. I listen to a lot of Dead, my wife does not, though she went to many shows with me and enjoys the music. Currently on vacation and listening to. 99.0 non dead and surviving. Change is good and revitalizing. With no change comes stagnation. Moving ahead while retaining some old is also good and certainly better than stagnating.

The historic Stones footage is from their final show of the 1972 North American tour, 7/26/72, Micks 29th birthday, @ MSG in NYC.

That'd make the corresponding Dead show

which as a fantastic Dark Star -> Comes a Time.

unless this is arguably the Stones greatest show ever as Veneta is to the Dead, this is no contest every time...

July 26 would be the final show of Stones's tour, affectionately known as STP (Stones Touring Party). The entourage would count many journalists and writers and personalities as hanger-ons, including Truman Capote at one point.

In hindsight, I think this is where you see Mick make the break from grungy rock star to international jet-setter and society boy.

By all accounts, the better shows were in the middle third of the tour, not at the end.
